They’re even more annoying when attached to personal emails. I’ve seen personal email signatures with made-up titles, homages to alma maters, tributes to sports teams and, inevitably, quotes.

The problem with quotes is that they can be hit or miss—meaningful to some, contrived to others.

Here are a few interesting, off-the-wall and thought-provoking quotes to consider for your email signature.

1. “The universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.”
—Neil deGrasse Tyson

2. “For in that sleep, what dreams may come.”
—William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”

3. “No compulsion in the world is stronger than the urge to edit someone else’s document.”
—H. G. Wells

4. “We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.”
—Winston Churchill

5. “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
—Aldous Huxley
